If you have already been fully vaccinated or have passed the COVID infection, you can request the European COVID certificate that you can also download to your iPhone to have them available in your card holder. We explain how step by step.
The European COVID certificate is available for those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or who have had the disease. Accessible from the website of the Ministry of Health or the health services of your Autonomous Community, it can be downloaded in PDF format to print it or have it on your iPhone. And now it is compatible with the Card Holder “Wallet” application on your iPhone
To make the request, it is necessary to have the Digital Certificate. If you do it from a computer it will be easier, and with the self-signing application you will be able to complete the application. Since the iPhone or iPad is more complicated, you must have the permanent Cl @ ve to be able to use the Cl @ ve signature. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, better do it on the computer with the certificate and the Self-signed application.
You must access the website of the Ministry of Health authorized for this purpose (link) and follow the steps indicated. It is important not to leave the ministry website because if you are using another website you will not be able to upload it to Wallet. To identify yourself you will need the Digital Certificate installed on your computer. After answering a few questions to find out if you have had the disease or if you have been vaccinated, and where you have been vaccinated, you will be taken to the request form.
In this form it is important that you look at the bottom, to mark that you wish to receive the certificate in Wallet or Passbook format. You must complete all the fields indicated to you in order to proceed to the next step.
This is the most critical part of the whole procedure. On a computer, you will need to use the self-signed application with the digital certificate in order to complete the application. On the iPhone and the iPad it is much more complicated, since there is no AutoSignature. You must be registered with Cl @ ve and have permanent Cl @ ve, in order to use the Cl @ ve signature and complete the application. A day will come when all these steps will be much simpler but to this day, it is still hell to take care of administration sites.
If you have successfully overcome the entire process, within a few minutes (sometimes an hour) you will receive an email and SMS with the link to download the certificate to the Cardholder or Wallet app. As if it were a credit card, you can view it by double-tapping the side button from your iPhone. And it also includes information about your vaccine.
